Just got back from taking the N.E.T :uhoh21: , Paper format so i have to wait 3 weeks for the results! Anyways, I don't think I did that well in the math portion, but I think I did excellent in the Reading portion. So my question is, Does anyone know what part of the test is the most important? Like is one section more important than the other? And if it is then how exactly do the scores tally up? I guess what I'm sayin is if you Ace one part and then do just "okay" on another, is it possible to still pass?

Thanks for any replies;)

Like the previous posters said, it all depends on your school. Luckily, my school does the NET on the computer, so we get scores immediately! My school looks at 3 sections, the Reading, Math and the stress levels and scores us on Math and Reading only. We have to take all sections, and get scores for them, but are only checked on those sections. We have to make a 60% on both.

I don't believe that they will tally both together to get a passing grade. It is a passing grade on both portions. Believe it or not, the math is usually the easiest to pass. Reading is my best subject, and I thought I did much better than I actually did. I passed well enough, but didn't make in the high 90's like I thought. Math, on the other hand, was the part that I was nervous about since I hadn't taken Algebra in HS and had to take remedial classes in college, but I did pass with a 92%!! Go figure!!!

Hope this helps, and good luck!

My school requires 60% in math and english minimum- they are both weighed they same. My school also had us do all the lame sections that mean nothing- annoyed the piss out of me to waste my time on questions like- When answering a multiple choice question the correct answer is most likely- A, B, C or D!

I have not had math in 12 years and still managed to pass without a problem, for me the reading section was very easy. I think I got a 90 something on reading - the math only a 70 something. So I'm sure if I had reviewd the math I coud have done better- but everyone told me it was easy - so I kind of blew it off -decided Thursday I would take the test Sat. But still managed to pass with an 89% I think, I don't remember for sure. I got in so I guess the score was high enough. I do not think the NET test is that difficult and I do not think it is a good indicator of who would do well in nursing school.

^ Exactly. And, yes! The "test taking skills" portion!! Wasn't that the dumbest thing ever??? If a question is True/False, The SHORTER statement is usually the answer: A, Longer B Shorter C No difference and blah blah blah.. lol I swear Those were silly questions, but yes I do think the test was easy although I KNOW I did horrible in the math, If I take it again, I think I would pass easily. At least I know what to expect now. Now I'm getting ready to take my TEAS at another school, so I should do well in that. I will definitely be well prepared.;)
